The Daeunen

Back to Races

The Daeunen ‘day-oon-en’ are one of the dominant races of sayari.
Humanoid of form, adults typically grow to 4-5ft in height and in build, are athletic or slender. Their noses are narrow and sometimes almost sharply pointed in the noble familes. their ears tend to have more of a pointed tip to them, again, this feature is more pronounced amongst the noble families.
Their skin is an off white with either a grey, brown or blue hue to it. They have dark green, brown, black or light blond hair naturally, but some are known to dye their hair in reds, blues pinks and/or purple hues.
A peculiar trait of the Daeunen, their eye colour seems to depend on their parents birth place, those who’s parents are Native to Nox have Violet, Indigo or deep blue eyes, those who’s parents are native to northern Alea have pale blue, grey or ivory eyes, whilst the Daeunens who’s parents are native to Tuliva have brown, green and red eyes.
The children of central Alea have entirely black eyes with no discernable pupil, iris or sclera (the traditionally white part of our eyes) unless a light is shone on them at night, then revealing a pale green glow on the iris.
The first few generations born there were thought to be cursed and blind due to this unnatural appearance, but after several generations with such eyes, only the most puritanical Noxite (a native of the isle of Nox), would look down on them or fear them, Daeunen elsewhere having no problem with, or even acknowledging the difference, except if giving a description of someone.

Though the Daeunen live in varying numbers across the habitable lands of Sayari, they predominantly live on the land of Nox.
The cities of Nox have an industrial age-ish victorian/tudor look with large mansion estates and a few remaining stone castles.
many cities are walled with multiple entrances.
they have relatively good sewage systems in the major large cities but smaller cities and towns commonly have the streets still with a large amount of filth even with the streetcleaners.
some towns at night have candle lit lamps, gaslight or magically lit street lamps on its main thoroughfares.
there are few small villages left, typically these are part of large areas of farmland.

daeunen notes
class based society, the last king was killed many years ago during a revolution against the royals, many amongst the elite at some time may claim to have royal blood in their lineage, this is usually hogswash, though also rumour persists that there is surviving royal familysomewhere… possibly it hid amongst the poor or on foreign isle…
